Sorry for the long load times. Andri and I spent the night at Diego's house which is closest to Los Alamos (about 20 minutes). I was almost done with my Scout walker II kit so it only took about an hour and a half to finish it up. I spent lots of time walking around, checking out other peoples bots and taking photos. At lunch time Steve Jones, Ivar, Lorenzo and I went over to Mark Tilden's lab to see some of his bots and what he was working on. I brought along my camera and took lots of photos (see Mark Tilden's bot gallery) among others in the gallery there are photos of his robot chess set, robo sidewinder, three foot long walker and tons of other photos. After about an hour we went back to the workshop where we had a quick lunch and got back to work. We worked for a little while and then I went outside to take some photos of the competition that was held. The walker sumo is really quite fun. Anyway I would just like to thank Paul Argo for a GREAT job organizing the workshop and to all the others who helped out. Enjoy =)
